Dining with Diabetes

October 19, 2006

To help individuals who have diabetes or have a family or friend with the disease, K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County is offering a four-session cooking school on "Dining with Diabetes."

The classes will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays, beginning Oct. 25, at the Douglas County Extension Center at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Cost is $30 per participant or $50 per couple living in the same household. The registration fee will include course materials, recipes and food tasting.

The goals of the program are to increase knowledge about healthy foods, prepare healthy versions of familiar foods, demonstrate new cooking techniques, provide taste testing of new recipes, provide basic information about diabetes and nutrition and provide opportunities for people with diabetes to share and learn from one another.

For more information or to enroll, call Susan Krumm at K-State Research and Extension-Douglas County at 843-7058.

Pre-registration, due no later than Friday is required and space is limited.
